Castel Laudeck, or Laudegg, is located at the high-plateau of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis and can be visited in summertime
Only a stone's throw from Berneck Castle at Kauns, on the other side of the Oberinntal valley, Laudeck Castle stands a rock spur. Approaching the sun plateau, you first reach Ladis that is perched by the fortress of the 13th century and its castle lake. Many buildings in the village at its foot are decorated with beautiful façade paintings, which makes you feel the magic of the past.
In 1200 AD, a residential tower had been built, and in the 13th century the castle was first mentioned in documents as "Castrum Laudekke". However, archeological findings suggest that the building is much older and was erected as a Roman guarding tower: Ladis is located along an ancient Roman road. Up to the 16th century, Laudeck Castle (Burg Laudeck) used to be the administrative seat of the court, before it was transferred to Ried. Afterwards it was used as prison and arms depot and slowly started deteriorating.
In the 20th century the facility was in part restored - today it is in possession of the family of Prof. Apel. In summer months, once a week, it can be visited in the frame of a guided tour. The castle is rather simple, but the residential tower of the 13th century has been exemplarily preserved. Moreover there is a residential part, the outer ward, and the dungeon.
No guided castle tours have been offered in 2023, season start 2024 in June.
